The Bronx in New York is one of the five famous Boroughs in the area of New York City. It is located in the northern part of the boroughs near Manhattan. It got its name when a man named Jonas Bronk settled in the area. He was a European settler that lived along what was then called the Harlem River. In the beginning, the Bronx was mostly farmland and neighborhoods were scarce. When the railroad services were built in the area it began growing in population. The Bronx became part of New York city in 1895. During the 1820's it started to become even more populated. Many residents built and lived in large apartment buildings. For tourists visiting the area of the Bronx, it offers many sites to see. One of the most popular the Bronx Zoo. It has been famous since its opening.
